Indian Standard 

SPECIFICATION FOR 
SINGLE BARREL STIRRUP PUMP FOR 
FIRE FIGHTING PURPOSES 

{Second Revision) 



0. FOREWORD 

0.1 This Indian Standard ( Second Revision ) was adopted by the Indian 
Standards Institution on 25 April 1977, after the draft finalized by the 
Fire Fighting Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil 
Engineering Division Council. 

0.2 Stirrup pump is one of the first-aid fire fighting appliances for 
extinguishing fires in the initial stage. The stirrup pump is generally 
used for class A fires which are in ordinary combustible materials, where 
the quenching and cooling effect of water is necessary. It is used in 
conjunction with water buckets and is recommended for installation in 
all types of industrial and non-industrial buildings having class ' A ' fire 
risk, in addition to other first-aid fire fighting appliances that may be 
necessary. 

0.2.1 Strirrup pump is also used by the Civil Defence Services for 
dealing with small fires resulting from enemy action. 

0.3 This standard was issued as an Emergency Indian Standard in March 
1%3 to meet the needs of the emergency and issued as firm in 1968, 
The second revision has been prepared based on the use of this standard 
in the last 8 years and to keep it in line with IS : 1971-1975*. 

0.4 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of 
this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, 
expressing the result of a test, shall be rounded ofT in accordance with 
IS : 2-1960t. The number of significant places retained in the rounded 
off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this 
standard. 



♦Specification for hand-operated continuous single-barrel stirrup pump ( third 
revision ) . 

tRules for rouuJing otf numerical values ( revised ). 



IS t 2298 " 1977

pressure. 

2,A Plunger Rod — A rod or tube for helping the movement of the 
plunger. 

2.5 Barrel — A component for guiding the movement of the plunger, 

2.6 Stroke — The maximum travel of the plunger rod in one direction 
when the handle moves from its lowest possible position to its highest 
posible position. 

2.7 Valve — A device provided to check or to allow the flow of liquid. 

2#8 Total Mass — The mass of complete pump with all its mountings 
but without any liquid and discharge line, that is, without delivery hose, 
cut*off device, lance and nozzle. 

3. MATERIALS 

3.1 The materials of construction for various components of the pump 
conforming to relevant Indian Standards are given in Table I. 

4. COMPONENTS 

4.1 Barrel — The barrel shall have a uniform bore of not less than 
22 mm and the thickness of the wall shall be not less than 1*50 mm. It 
shall be straight throughout its entire length. The ends shall be cleanly 
cut and shall be square with the axis of the barrel. 

4.2 Plunger Rod — The outside diameter of the plunger rod shall be 
not less than 16 mm afier machining. It shall be straight throughout its 
length. 

4.3 Plunger — It shall be machined all over and made a smooth 
working fit when inserted in the barrel at any position of either the

b) Year of manufacture. 

7.1.1 Each pump may also be marked with the ISI Certification mark. 

Note — The use of the ISI Certification Mark is governed by the provisions of the 
Indian Standards Institution ( Certiiication Marks ) Act and the Rules and Regu- 
lations made thereunder. The ISI Mark on products covered by an Indian Standard 
conveys tiie assurance that they have been produced to comply with the requirements 
of that standard under a weil-dehncd system of inspection, testing and quality 
control which is devised and supervised by ISI and operated by the producer, ISI 
marked products arc also continuously checked by ISI for conformity to that standard 
as a further safeguard. Details of conditions under which a licence for the use of 
the ISI Certification Mark may be granted to manufacturers or processors, may be 
obtained from tlie Indian Standards Institution.
